Description

    Dick Sprang - Detective Comics #136 Cover Recreation Original Art (1991). A fantastic recreation rendered by one of Batman's pre-eminent Golden Age artists. Sprang, who passed away in 2000, was a regular on Batman titles for nearly three decades, and created a unique visual style for the Caped Crusader. This piece showcases one of his Golden Age covers from 1948, showing the Dark Knight taking down Scarface Carson, killer-at-large. This lot includes an amusing letter he wrote to the recipient claiming that this piece would be unique, simply because of the difficulty Sprang had reproducing all the lettering. As far as recreations go, this is top of the line. Nicely matted and framed, this piece has an image area that measures 13" x 18" and is ready to grace the wall of any Bat-fan.
